Answering the questions Page 2
Little research has gone into the question of how aquaculture affects the status of women and gender relations in the household and the community, and how in turn these relationships influence the effectiveness of aquaculture in improving livelihoods and addressing poverty. The dangers of a partial integration of gender issues in poverty alleviation projects is to increase women's workload, without meeting their strategic needs, that is to say, without challenging their invisibility in society.

The Women in Aquaculture project (FWG03/99), funded by the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) in 1999-2001 addressed these questions to ensure that gender issues were integrated in the planning of aquaculture development.
Policy implications were further discussed during a workshop funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID).
A number of other outputs were also produced and widely disseminated.
